Musée d'Orsay: Recital by Véronique Gens and Susan Manoff

Recital by Véronique Gens and Susan Manoff

French melody naturally has pride of place, with that most French of American pianists and one of our most marvellous singers in the language of Molière – or Maeterlinck, as she is equally famous for her twentieth century baroque. A lesson in poetry, in dramatic intensity, and in what we might call, with a touch of chauvinism, the essence of French art: a class act!
